O MR. FRANK HOLDEN, 
IN SINCERE APPRECIATION OF HIS INTER- 
EST, COUNSEL, EXAMPLE, AND TEACHING 
DURING OUR YEARS AT SCHOOL, THIS 
VOLUME OF THE FABRICATOR 
IS DEDICATED. 



MR. SMITH 

Principal 

MR. SMITH IS ONE WHOM ALL THE SCHOOL 
RESPECTS. HE HAS WON THIS RESPECT 
THROUGH HIS CLOSE CONTACT WITH THE 
STUDENTS AND HIS INTENSE INTEREST IN 
THE ATHLETIC AS WELL AS THE SCHOLASTIC 
STANDING OF THE PUPILS. 

THEREFORE WE. THE CLASS OF 1928, WISH 
TO LEAVE AS A LAST ACT, A VOTE OF THANKS 
TO MR. WILLIM SMITH, PRINCIPAL OF THE 
NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL, FOR HIS 
ADVICE AND GOOD FEELING TOWARD US. 




WHEN THE WHALING INDUSTRY PASSED FROM NEW BED- 
FORD THE COTTON MILL CAME TO TAKE ITS PLACE. AT THE 
PRESENT TIME THE COTTON INDUSTRY OF THE CITY IS 
THREATENED, BUT WE, THE SENIORS OF THE NEW BEDFORD 
TEXTILE SCHOOL HAVE FAITH IN OUR CHOSEN CALLING AND 
IN OUR CITY AND BELIEVE THAT THE INDUSTRY WILL SUR- 
VIVE ITS PRESENT CRISIS AND EMERGE SOUNDER 

THAN BEFORE.

CHEMISTRY, DYEING AND FINISHING 

DEPARTMENT 



IT was here that we joined in the pursuit of the "elusive atom" and learned 
whence came ninety percent of the noise, all the odors and the weird com- 
binations of colors with which the socks, obtained by fair means or foul from 
the Knitting Department, were dyed. 

We also struggled here with the mysteries of inorganic and organic chem- 
istry, qualitative and quantitative analysis, textile chemistry, dyeing and fin- 
ishing, more popularly known as wet wash. Mr. F. E. Busby, assisted by Mr. 
F. L. Weymouth, Mr. Abram Brooks and Mr. Broadfoot, proved to be very 
capable instructors in the above mentioned subjects. 

The department is well equipped and has two laboratories fitted up with 
all the apparatus necessary for analytical and experimental chemistry. The 
Finishing Department is equipped to handle the cloth as it comes from the 
loom and turn it out finished, ready to be put to the use intended for it.

THE WEAVING AND DESIGNING DEPARTMENT 

THE Weaving and Designing department trains the students to fill positions 
as designing, weaving and commission house executives. In the design 
room creative design work, advanced Jacquard designing, color, cloth analysis 
and structure are studied in detail. 

The Weave room affords the student opportunities for practical and 
theoretical knowledge of advanced power weaving of every description, includ- 
ing the preparation of warps for the loom. In this department the greatest 
assortment of looms in the world under one roof can be found. Work is carried 
on by the student on plain, box, dobby, leno, and Jacquard machines thereby 
enabling themselves to obtain a complete education in weaving and loom con- 
struction. Co-ordinating with the design room many elaborate patterns have 
been woven. 

Mr. Holt who has been with the school since its originating is head of the 
department. His unlimited knowledge of designing and willingness to impart 
it along with his untiring patience have produced hundreds of expert designers, 
many of whom are holding positions of great responsibility. 

Mr. Acomb in charge of the weave room along with his two able assistants 
Mr. Beardsworth and Mr. Moore, has kept this room up to date and is always 
ready to try out new ideas. Mr. Beardsworth's mill experience has proven an 
invaluable asset in helping students out of mechanical difficulties. Through the 
generosity of the various loom manufacturers and loom accessories companies 
the weave room has all the modern equipment necessary for such advanced study 
as carried on here.

MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT 



THE Mechanical Department was primarily created to make the students in 
the school who were taking the various Cotton and Chemistry courses 
become acquainted with various things mechanical that they would be apt to 
come in contact with when they took up their life's work. Each year this 
department has been growing, until during the past year, the mechanical depart- 
ment was the largest department, in student hours, in the school. 

All students in the school regardless of the course they are pursuing must 
take the various studies provided in the curriculum of this department. A 
two year special course is offered to prospective students who wish to take only 
those things mechanical. 

During the first year the much liked and appreciated Mechanics take con- 
siderable of the students time along with Mechanical drawing. Next comes 
Steam Engineering, Machine drawing and Shop work which are given to the 
various classes to help them increase their general knowledge, and gives everybody 
more or less worry and bother. 

Electricity and Mill Engineering help the students to while away their 
last year in school and send them out into the highways with a good general 
knowledge of the Mechanical world which some day they will be glad to use. 

The Head of the Department Mr. Morris H. Crompton is ably assisted by 
Mr. William T. Walton and Mr. Adam Bayreuther, who have succeeded in por- 
traying some of their useful knowledge to the student body.

THE COTTON YARN PREPARATION DEPT. 



THE pillars upon which the entire textile business of cotton mfg. rests is 
without question the carding and spinning department. With this in 
mind the faculty has developed one of the most progressive departments in 
the school and their accomplishments (with the student co-operation) are well 
known thruout the world. Unfortunately this department suffered the loss 
of its instructor early in the fall of 1927, but Mr. Holden at that time assistant 
to Mr. Taft was temporarily promoted to fill the vacancy. Mr. Smith, the prin- 
cipal of the school with his unlimited knowledge of Cotton carding and spin- 
ning has assisted Mr. Holden in making this department the most interesting 
from the student view point. Mr. Woolam acting as assistant to Mr. Holden has 
afforded the student body every available opportunity of obtaining the highest 
peak of achievement on Picker, Card, and Drawing technicalities. 

Among the numerous advancements made in the past year the installation 
of the Woonsocket Hurricane Opener was the most notable. Although no small 
credit must be given to the testing room developments the installation of the 
Casablancas long draft system, Washburn lay draft and the Foster high speed 
winder. Mr. Manning head of the Knitting Department co-operating with 
the C. Y. P. Department has impressed upon both student and faculty the 
importance of a modern testing room. 

With the up to the minute machinery and experienced instructors in this 
department the student is assured of a complete knowledge of practical and 
theoretical Carding and Spinning of fine Cotton yarn, thereby enabling him to 
carry out into the trade new and modern ideas.

KNITTING DEPARTMENT 

SOON after entering school we learned that there was a knitting department 
included in this institution of learning. It occupied the top floor of the 
southern wing of the school. 

Some of us were more or less acquainted with the spinning, weaving and 
designing work found in the textile industry but our knowledge of the knitting 
business was a minus quantity. As most of us were regular diploma students it 
required at least two years before we were officially introduced to the intricate 
working parts of the knitting machine and the exacting requirements both in 
yarn and finished product. 

For some reason or other, knitters are great fellows for traveling around, 
moving from one position to another, until it becomes a habit. Mr. Manning 
is no exception to the rule but during our three years at the school we have 
noticed that the equipment at the school has been much moved around and the 
layout changes so often it hardly seems necessary for him to travel any farther at 
least, for the sake of a change of scenery. 

He seems never to be satisfied and has replaced the old equipment with 
new and up-to-date machines and added considerable new equipment to his 
department, through the generous co-operation of the various machine man- 
ufacturers.

HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL 



The New Bedford Textile School was established by the Trustees 
of the New Bedford Textile School, incorporated in accordance with Chapter 
475, Acts of 1895. 

The Board of Trustees was organized on Aug. 1st, 1895 with the fol- 
lowing members; 

Wm. L. Butler 
P. G. DeNormanville 
John Wilkinson 
George R. Stetson 
Robert Burgess 

Articles of corporation were adopted and George W. Hillman was elected 
clerk of the corporation. The first annual meeting was held Jan. 27, 1896, 
when the following officers were elected: William J. Kent, President, Isaac B. 
Tompkins, Jr., Treasurer, George W. Hillman, Clerk.

Building, Finance, Machinery, Education and Executive Committees 
appointed. 

In April 1897, the City of New Bedford appropriated $25,000 for the 
use of the school. 

Annual meeting was held Feb. 1 898. The following officers were elected: 
George E. Briggs, President, Isaac B. Tompkins, Jr., Treasurer, George W. 
Hillman, Clerk. 

March 18, 1898 received $25,000 from the State of Massachusetts. 

July 12, 189 8, land bought and building committee authorized to prepare 
plans and procure bids for a building. 

January 30, 1899, C. P. Brooks was engaged as Managing Director. 

April 24, 1899, committee authorized to engage staff of instructors. 

July 24, 1899, first meeting of the Board held in the school building. 

School building dedicated Oct. 14, 1899. 

The officers of the Board of Trustees at the time of the dedication were as 
follows: George E. Briggs, President, Isaac B. Tompkins, Jr., Treasurer, Robert 
Burgess, Clerk. 

The school opened for day students Oct. 16, 1899, and for evening students 
Oct. 23, 1899. 

The first building was three stories, with small basement. The main 
building was 64 x 100 feet with an annex 12 x 67 feet on first floor for engine 
and boiler room. The power used was a small 40 h. p. engine with rope and 
belt transmission. 

Building, First Floor: General office, exhibition room or library and 
machine room for carding and spinning department. 

2nd Floor; Two recitation rooms, Directors' room and machine room for 
weaving and slashing. 

3rd Floor; Two recitation rooms, the largest one used for design depart- 
ment, dark room for photographic work, machine room for spooling, winding 
and hand looms, and drawing. 

In 1902 it was decided to add two other departments, — chemistry and 
knitting. To do this it was necessary to add to the building. 

This addition was built onto the south side of the original building, three 
stories and basement. 

The first floor was used for two small class rooms, and a machine room for 
winding and warping; second floor for knitting; third floor for chemistry. 

Mr. Wm. E. Hatch was appointed President April 15, 1904. 

As the number of students in the evening classes was increasing very rapidly 
it was found necessary to add to the building again. This second addition was 
added in 1905. It was built on the south side, carrying the building out to the 
Maxfield Street line, three floors and basement.

This addition called for rearranging the departments and equipment. The 
engine and boiler room was placed in the basement of addition No. 2 and the 
power changed to electricity. 

The weaving room was moved to the new addition 2nd floor and the space 
vacated was used for spooling, warping and slashing which was moved from the 
first and third floors. The picking machinery was moved to first floor, first 
addition, and the carding, drawing, combing roving and spinning to first floor 
new addition. Two class rooms and a room for a machine shop was made in the 
old card room. 

At this time a Mechanical Course was put in. The North part of the third 
floor original building was used as a drawing class room and the Northwest 
corner of the old card room for a machine shop. This arrangement was carried 
along until 1911 when the recitation building was erected to the north of the 
original building and joined to it by two bridges and a tunnel. This addition 
was built principally for class rooms as it had been found practically impossible 
to carry on lecture and recitation work in rooms adjacent to machine rooms.

This addition was three stories with full basement and was used by the 
chemistry department, mechanical department, design department, a large audi- 
torium on the 3rd floor, an exhibition room on 2nd floor, class rooms on the 
2nd and 3rd floors. 

This called for another general rearrangement of departments and equip- 
ment, the carding and spinning department taking the whole of the first floor of 
building 1-2 and 3 and the weaving the second floor of building 1-2 and 3, 
the knitting department rooms 2 and 3 of the 3rd floor. At this time a cotton 
classing room was fitted up on the 3rd floor. 

This arrangement was carried along until 1922 when the 4th addition 
was built. The Maxfield Street building was carried west to the line of the 
original building. 

This building was three stories without basement. The first floor was 
taken by the spinning department, the second floor weaving and the 3rd floor 
for a gymnasium.

Present Building 



A number of changes which had been needed for a long time was made at 
this time. Locker and toilet rooms were provided on 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors. A 
shower bath room was connected with locker and toilet room on 3rd floor; a 
dra wing-in room was fitted up on 2nd floor; a cotton classing room with north- 
ern exposure and sky-light on 3rd floor. Also a small testing laboratory on 
3rd floor. 

The original building contained 1 1 rooms with about 20,000 square 
feet of floor space. The present buildings contain 50 rooms with over 100,000 
square feet of floor space. All departments are equipped with up-to-date 
machinery, especially designed for instruction purposes. The total value of the 
present equipment is over $275,000. About one half of the equipment has 
either been donated or loaned. 

The number of students attending the first year 1899- 1900 was: 
Day Students 11 Evening Students 183 

The number of students 1927- 1928 was: 
Day Students 96 Attending 1576

HISTORY OF THE CHEMISTRY CLASS 

TIME! ! beating out the March of minutes has kept mankind advancing, 
battling, conquering, or failing. Yes--three years have passed, it seems, 
in an instant. We have advanced; met that which was set before us to master 
and are now taking up a new advance, fully prepared to conquer the new ob- 
stacles which will confront us during life. 

Three years have changed us from bashful "green freshmen" to the dig- 
nified Chemistry Class of 1928. Let us go back and see what we have been 
doing -- besides that necessary routine of study. 

September 1925: Ten bashful freshmen crossed the threshold of "The 
Lab" and were captured by the instructors and assigned to hard study for three 
years. After a few days, one pupil, (it must have been Adelsohn) , was caught 
whispering so we finally dared to get acquainted with each other and many 
other things in or in the vicinity of "The Lab." How quickly we learned — 
where the acid cellar was, where Rock's Variety Store was and what Murphy 
and Burt had boiling in the dye pans every day. On "Blue Mondays," "Red" 
Lawrence and "Heck" Rocha would strike up "I Never Knew" and what a 
mean duet they would sing. 

Skull caps, large bow ties, the call of the paddle and we were either a 
Delta Kappa Phi or a Phi Psi fraternity man. 

Cold weather -- Textile called her sons out to do or die on the basketball 
court. "Bob" Brickley, our dyeing instructor, took over the coaching job and 
the final cut found George Schofield and Fred and Fran Tripp on the first team. 
In baseball, Ed Waring held up the honors for our class. 

September 1926: Back at dear old "Tech" again. "Red" Lawrence and 
"Heck" Rocha were not with us and how we did miss those two songbirds! 
Studies became harder this term but we conquered all that opposed us. The 
small "Lab" was now the scene of our battle for knowledge and also -- "for 
our life." By this time we had learned that there was CjH.-,OH in gingerale 
that H2O was good to drink and that HC1 was not hydrolic acid. 

"Borden's Cafe" succeeded "Murphy and Burt" and how well "Doc" 
kept Sully from talking, "Rad" from swearing and Adelsohn from jarring 
the bottle off of the shelves. While "Joe" Norris was arguing with Professor 
Brickley about the various secret formulas, such as KuP, one of us would go out 
and see "Rock." 

On the basketball floor Schofield and the Tripp Twins kept the Chemistry 
Class on the map. "Ed" Waring and Fran Tripp played on the Varsity base- 
ball nine and "Sully" played on the golf team.

September 1927: Dignified Seniors -- back at school again, rushing about, 
knocking instructors down and making Freshmen dissolve sulphur in HuO. 
We immediately took possession of the "Small Lab" and sold distilled water 
permits for ten cents. We were soon presented with many Technical Analyses 
and Mr. Busby took us "down cellar" to the "Land of Gray," where we 
were soon taught what the difference was between a jig and a tenter frame. 
Oh, remember George chinned himself fourteen times. In the "Lab," the 
Textile Goose strutted about making life miserable for anyone he stopped near. 

Social activities occupied all of our spare time, during our last half year; 
and here we are now at the close of our course and graduation day before us. 
Let us not forget all that "Tech" has done for us, our instructors who have 
labored so hard to teach us and all our fellow students. 



THE SENIORS FROM THE GENERAL SIDE 

ALL hail to the cap and gown. We find that after three years of crawling 
into that garment we are fast becoming experts in carrying our sex appeal 
as well as our personality while decked out in dear old Tech's C. & G. This 
being our last year as students and the last for many of us as men of leisure??? 
We have tried to act as seriously as could be expected from a crowd of young men 
who have in their midst Turner, Peters, Soler, et al. 

The generals and designers have made several bids for fame during their 
three years here and the writer will endeavor to inform the world of some of 
the activities of the class members. However our class has been well represented 
in athletics, scholastic, and social activities with numerous side issues such as, -- 
well perhaps it would be best to let the rest go by default. We have been repre- 
sented on the Basketball court by Carlson and Brotherson, on the diamond by 
Brotherson, Carlson, Fawcett, Soler, and Blackmer, and on the Track team by 
Holmes, Potter, Carlson, and Brotherson. In the Freshman period of our 
existence Carlson managed to cop the Hatch Medal with Macia as runner-up. 
In our second year we were mainly interested in Athletics and Social events 
seeing that our class was not yet organized. In our Senior Year we blossomed 
out and went out for -- everything -- AND HOW. One of our number was 
elected President of the Class, that is Carlson, another was elected Treasurer, 
Brotherson. The General Class boosted Brotherson for Treasurer so that they 
could keep close tabs on the boys clothes and whether he took any long trips 
or smoked expensive cigars.

ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE GENERAL CLASS 

Biswas — Native of India — addicted to chewing Betel nut with an ungodly 
crunching of jaws. He had much trouble in keeping up to the boys 
wise cracks and horseplay. 

Blackmer — Native of Needham — Fond of verbal debating with Mr. Acomb. 
Played Baseball and took Turner out for evening of picking up. He 
liked playing ball better than the picking Turner picked. 

Brotherson — unfortunate lives in New Bedford. — Only honest looking man in 
the class. As a result was elected Class Treasurer. So far his neckties 
are the same as the ones he had four years ago but he is closely watched. 
Played Baseball, Basketball, Class Treasurer. 

Carlson — New Bedford — Class never ceases to razz if he makes a mistake. Has 
a faint idea he is a painter after taking color with Mr. Holt. Played 
Basketball, Baseball, Manager Basketball 2 years, Hatch Medal, Class 
President. 

Fawcett — Rhode Island — Has one drawback — he plays a saxophone. The class 
has never forgiven him for this. Coined a new way to call Mr. Holt 
and save energy, merely bawls out "Sta' Hoi." Also carries the finest 
bay window in the class. Played Baseball. 

Holmes — N. B. — Has a mania for going to Textile school and is now a P. G. 
The only member of the class who smokes cigars on school days and 
really looks as though he bought 'em. After four years at Tech he is 
thinking of opening a soda fountain. Member Track team and self 
appointed Trustee of the school. 

Macia — North Brookfield — Lovingly called Runt, Shorty, Tiny, Shrimp, and 
others his family might read here. Loves to argue and somehow has 
developed a southern drawl, we presume from too much contact with 
Turners light?? lady friends. 

Peters — Padanaram — AAAAAAAAHHHHH. It. Sex appeal. Manliness. 
Answer to a maiden's prayer. The other half of the Turner-Peters 
feud. The only man of the class who has taken a pot shot at a sheriff 
during the hunting season. He also took a fine of Ten dollars. It is 
rumored that he borrowed the Ten from the same sheriff. Cause of 
his down fall — too popular with the fair sex. Can eat more candy 
than any six men and he eats it, not anyone else. Reason for Mr. 
Holt's additional grey hairs.

19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR 



Potter — N. B. — The manly blond. The class baby but oh my oh what a 
child. Smokes a pipe, goes to dances, (not alone) bowls, plays 
billiards and has other mild dissipations. Claims Marie Jacquard as 
one of his ancestors. Showed his contempt of his class mates by 
grabbing off a good job before he had grabbed off his sheepskin. 

Soler — Mexico (he couldn't help it he says). — Only comeback to all wise 
cracks is "SO's your old man." Has managed to raise a slight down 
on his upper lip and is frantically twirling it every minute to get 
that real "Kulture Twist." Always has a better one than you have 
to tell and can go you one better on all your escapades. Played Base- 
ball, ran in fat men's race — lost. 

Turner — Last residence New Bedford. Latest reports Sing Sing — Being the 
last of the list and fortunately the one of whom the most can be said. 
Raffles, Don Juan, and Simple Simon rolled into one. Has caused 
more disputes in class over the color of his lady friends than any 2000 
men. Class swears he has become two shades darker than when he was 
a Freshman. Middle name is rumored to be SLEEP. Has been caught 
sleeping while shaving, sitting, riding, walking, eating, dancing, but 
never has been caught wooing Morpheus in class. That is the Class 
has decided that he doesn't sleep during lecture but just naturally dies. 
He is the other half of the Peters-Turner feud and has been brawling 
incessantly for two years with his adversary but if the fact must be 
known neither one knows what it is all about. In the future he will 
be a Western Union messenger boy no doubt as he dearly loves to run 
errands for the boys. Elected to the hall of fame as the only Textilian 
who promised to take three girls to a dance met them there and had a 
good time with the whole three. Outside of sleeping his only other 
bad habits are gambling, drinking, thieving, alienation of affections, 
arson, assault and battery, murder, and outlawry. He does chew gum. 

We are all genuinely sorry that our last year at Tech is drawing to a close 
and we sincerely hope that the underclasses will endeavor to uphold the stand- 
ards of the school as much as we have tried to do.

HISTORY OF THE MECHANICAL SPECIAL CLASS 

LO! and Behold! See what the Mechanical Department drew from the Fresh- 
man Class of 1927! Peavey, Boutin and "Ken" Tripp! We entered the 
Machine Shop on the first day of school to become members of the "Black 
Gang." Rodalowicz entered a few months later but he had already received 
the dope while attending night school the two previous terms. 

We saw ourselves first in the Machine Shop. With some satisfaction we 
looked ourselves over and began to enjoy each other. We seldom thought of 
our small numbers but when we did, we swelled visibly, for we were a fair 
looking bunch. 

Tripp and Peavey were stuck in with Gallagher and Quinn in Industrial 
Mathematics. They learned a great deal. 

The hours spent in Drawing were highly profitable under the guidance of 
Mr. Walton. However, we did think it was strange and a little hard that we 
should be expected to imitate Mr. Walton and draw as only good draftsmen 
should. 

We came back our last year, a much divided crowd. Peavey and Tripp 
spent most of their time in the drafting room while Boutin and Rodalowicz 
occupied their time in the shop. 

As a class we Specials have made little impression this year on the school 
because of our differing interests but as individuals some of us will long be 
remembered. Therefore it seems fitting that our history should be a history 
of individuals. 

BOUTIN: — is a product of South Middleboro. His strong point in his 
size and his muscle. Last summer he worked on the railroad (pick and shovel) , 
thereby earning enough money to purchase an Overland Car — Pride of South 
Middleboro — "To New Bedford and back once a day or to H — with ya!" 

RODALOWICZ: — if he was over in Poland he would be a big chief. He is 
a hard working, ever progressive lad. His only fault is he likes to talk or rather 
put in the* last word. Some day he is going to offer pills of sunshine for the 
sick but we would rather have him offer pills of moonshine. 

"KEN" TRIPP : — "The human skull" says "Ken" "consists of thirty-two 
bones" — but — some skulls are all bone. Tripp is the Boy Wonder of the 
Mechanical Department and we know that he will succeed. 

PEAVEY: — As a Y. M. C. A. track man, Bob claims that Chicago's most 
popular sport is putting the shot. Some morning he is going to forget himself 
and begin to work.

Joke Editor of The Fabricator 



Chemistry 



A DIE' is a very good student, quiet worker and is always willing to help a 
fellow student should he be called on. 'Adie' came down to 'Tech' after com- 
pleting his course at New Bedford High School and promptly made himself 
known to the friends and enemies of the school by his vociferous cheering at 
basketball games. 

His wise cracks do much towards livening up any dead moments that 
may occur in the "Lab" and we can always be sure of his Haw! Haw! Haw!

1 T was in the fall of 1925 when this young man arrived to join the ranks of 
the mill men. Khitish, big in heart and big in body, has a pair of black eyes 
and a smile that has won him many friends. Khitish, an idealist of life, is very 
fond of philosophy and dramatics and is also very much interested in his work, 
although he usually lets his mind take a trip to India, his native land, while a 
lecture is going on and wake up to find the class is all over. 

He is a personal friend of 'Monk' Peters. When it comes to work they 
get along so -- nicely and how! He has proved himself a first class member of 
the Three Musketeers and quite apt at cooking during the few days vacation 
the other two have been enjoying. He is very fond of fresh air and fresh air is 
very fond of him??? He is very quiet, although we must not forget that 'still 
waters run deep.' 

Whatever it may be, we wish 'Kit' success in his mill career and no doubt 
he will attain it.

DLACKMER, better known as "Blacky," is about the only one of us who has 
spent during his scholastic career, five days and four nights at school. 

When there is a meeting in progress, whether it be class or fraternity, and 
the door slams, it means "Exit Blackmer." It has not met his approval. 

In the future, for expert (?) advice on steam, electricity or the cotton end 
of the industry, call on Mr. Blackmer but for advice on women, call on the firm 
of Blackmer and Othote. 

We all know "Blacky" as a good natured (that is, most of the time) , hard 
working young man and we see in the sweet bye and bye nothing but success, 
that is, after visiting Taunton a few more times. 

So success to you in whatever you attempt, Blackmer, whether it is 
matrimonial or business.

L)0 you remember "Borden's Cafe?" Well, here is the proprietor. "Doc" will 
always be remembered by the boys in the 'Lab' as the opponent of 'Joe' Norris 
in daily debates over nothing at all. Eliot was one of the best liked fellows at 
'Tech' and his jolly disposition kept his class in good spirits during those 'try- 
ing three years." If Borden should suddenly decide to work in other than the 
chemical field and should open up a Cafe, in the center of the city, it surely would 
be a dark day for The Blue Moon, Smith's and all the other restaurants. 

Borden was manager of this spring's baseball nine and he surely did great 
work for the team. It was 'Doc' who took 'The Textile Goose' on the various 
basketball trips and as 'Tech' went out to conquer her foe on the court, a cheer 
led by Borden and a 'honk' from The Goose always started the boys to victory.

WHO is the greatest cavalier in New Bedford? Julius A. Soler! This robust

Soler is one of the many athletes of his kind who won his letter in base-

"Tim" Rooney. 

Evidently Soler is not very chummy with the alarm clock as he ordinarily

is also famous for his many jokes, always told during class time. 

His weekly habit is attending the Olympia where you will always find 
him parked in the front row of the orchestra. 

He is a great chemist. In converting, he puts his hands in his pockets, 
walks around and does all the heavy looking on.

SECOND YEAR GENERAL 

THE date of September 14th will long be remembered in Textile School 
for on that day the class of '29 returned as Juniors. When noses were 
counted it was found that the class boasted of a larger number of students than 
on leaving school the previous June. This was due to the fact that those taking 
the Junior Course were now considered worthy to join their sedate fellow 
students, the General Class. 

No wonder our instructors groaned inwardly when calling the first roll. 
Who wouldn't look forward with misgivings to spending a year with a class 
that boasted of wire boys, doffers, ordinary pick and shovel artists, changers over, 
gentlemen of leisure and others whom it will be best not to mention! 

As usual the first weeks of school were fairly easy but it was not long 
before the boys started to groan under the double burden of Designing and Dye- 
ing. Yes, Dyeing is the word — for when the boys were not dyeing over the 
little custard cups, they were dyeing over mounting the little samples on the 
dye cards, (that is, when they mounted the samples.) Things were better than 
they seemed. The boys surely did astound the experts of the Dyeing and Fin- 



-••ef 56)3»~-

ishing Industry for many a new way was found for the application of dyes, 
especially the one on "Dyeing in a Hot Bath." Results of this course were 
soon seen in the flashy socks that were being worn. The coloring of the socks 
along with the gestures of the head positively identified a man as attending Tex- 
tile School. 

In C. Y. P. they went from the frying pan into the fire — in other words, 
from Pickers to Roving Frames. It was not long before they found out that 
"your guess was as good as mine" on the Twist Multipliers but in the end 
everything came out all right as results are what count. Judging from the "high 
grade" warp and filling yarn they sent up to Mr. Acomb, they got results. How- 
ever, they are glad that it is the First Year General instead of the Second Year 
General that is spooling that same yarn. 

On returning to school one Monday they found that they had lost their 
able instructor of Cotton Yarn Preparation, Mr. Taft. No more would they 
hear his "just a mite more," "approximately" and many more of his famous 
sayings. It is with regret they look upon the passing of Mr. Taft and the class 
wishes him all the success in the world. 

Basketball found the class well represented and although none of them were 
members of the starting team, they were there when it came to filling in. The 
old adage was again proven — -"A team is as good as its reserves." Adams, 
Sullivan and Winsper were the class representatives in basketball and they 
entertained the boys with stories of the games and the adventures which befell 
them while visiting far off cities. The story about the Revolutionary General's 
car made the biggest hit with the boys. 

Drozek, Adams, Pietevino and Sullivan were the class representatives in 
baseball and although the schedule has not started yet, if predictions come true, 
the team is in for a good season. 

For the first time in the history of the school, officers were elected in the 
Second Year Class. After a week of stormy campaigning by the candidates for 
office, the election took place and on counting the ballots, it was found that the 
following were elected: 

"Jim" Adams President 

"Cliff" Pierce Vice-president 

"Cliff" Brooks Secretary 

"George" Rawcliffe Treasurer 

The first class meeting was held the last week of March and plans were 
made for a Sophomore dance to be run two weeks after Easter. All the boys 
are set on making the affair a success. Time will tell the story.

"Jim" Adams — one half of the "Heavenly Twin" combination, the boy 
who has covered more territory in and around New Bedford than any other 
student of Textile School — and HOW! Jim is Class President, a member of 
Phi Psi Fraternity, the basketball and baseball teams, and honorable mention 
Hatch Medal. 

"Cliff" Brooks, better known as "Parson" or "Deacon," divides his time 
between the Y. M. C. A., the Y. W. C. A., Mr. Holt and Mr. Acomb, the com- 
bination cannot be beaten, judging from the results obtained so far. "Cliff" 
is Class Secretary, a member of Phi Psi Fraternity, and, although quiet, quiet in 
that quiet, cozy way, he is a very busy boy and is one of the leaders of the club 
organized for shorter days and longer nights. 

Drozek, former member of the Junior Class, has but one passion in 

life, namely baseball. His idea of a good time is playing Soccer all day Saturday 
and Sunday. He is a member of Delta Kappa Psi Fraternity and of the base- 
ball team. 

"Ed" Farrow — "Like the seasons he comes and goes, whither no one 
knows," very, very cozy, he hasi his public to satisfy and he surely does it. Ed 
is a member of the Phi Psi Fraternity. He is "The Human Joke Book," 'The 
Heart Breaker," "Don Juan", "Old One Ball Himself," and in other words, a 
true Textillian. Ed is also a member of Brooks' famous club, "The Stay Up 
and Jump 'Em Club." Ed is making all kinds of records but perhaps that 
should not be mentioned. 

"Greg" Meagher, the President of the "Stay Up and Jump 'Em Club," 
gets more and goes more places on a street car than any other Textile student. 
He is the other half of the famous "We" combination in knitting and is the 
bane of all hotel managers. His room looks like a combination of the Pennsyl- 
vania, Prince George and Steamers Plymouth and Providence. In fact, Greg is 
thinking of starting a hostelry of his own. Rumors are afloat that he started 
one in Philadelphia. It was tough luck that he couldn't stand the strain. He 
is the only boy who sparred with his shadow in earnest and here's wishing him 
success in this summer's work. He will need it as he will be back to his old 
tricks again, Dyeing or Finishing. "Greg-gor-ee" is seen ducking about town 
with a box of chocolates under his arm. He is a member of Phi Psi Fraternity. 

Frank Pakula — "Pakula" is the one who found traces of the missing eagle 
on Adams, Carlson and Meagher. His big interests are the caring for eagles, 
pigeons and — ushers — at a well-known South End Motion Picture House. He 
is very serious at times and then every one watches him doubly sharp. Frank is 
just a member of the Second Year Class, but, Oh! what a member! 

Americus Petevino is a former member of the Junior Class. He is the boy 
who can talk silk and thinks Saturday and Sunday happen along so that he may 
play Soccer. Yes, he plays baseball, too, when he is not playing Soccer.

"Cliff" Pierce, Cape Cod's Own, is the boy who has a more questioning 
look than the Sphinx and asks more questions than — the man has not yet 
been found. He spends most of his time tinkering with a XXXXRadio set and 
has "got" everywhere but Heaven on the above set. "Cliff" takes an occasional 
flier at "Night" life. The boys know when he is about to step out because he 
always lights a long cigar, blows a couple of smoke rings and says — "What will 
we do." His favorite expression is "How" and his favorite answer is "No, 
you're kidding." Cliff is the Vice-president of the Class, the winner of the 
Hatch Medal and a member of Phi Psi Fraternity. 

"Dan" Sullivan — "Dan" is just "Dan," that covers everything. He gets 
there but time means nothing to him, a member of the "Textile Ramblers." He 
is famous for his experiments in the Chemistry Laboratory and can argue in 
Designing with the best of them. In fact, he has made "But, Mr. Holt, it goes 
this way," a famous saying. He is very much interested in automobiles, from the 
General's to his own. By the way, he divides his time between tinkering with 
The" Auto and some one over in Fairhaven. Thus early in life, New Bedford 
is not big enough for him. Dan is a member of Phi Psi Fraternity and plays 
basketball and baseball. 

Chao Ming Yu — "Ming" is the boy who divides his time between Walnut 
Street and school. He is not very noisy but he can be heard at times all the 
way down to the center, especially on days when we have Chem Lab or when 
we are in the dressing room. Ming's taste for cigars is not so good. Ask 
Farrow, Sullivan and Meagher. They know. Fifty years from now the in- 
structors will be telling their students about Ming's books. As in the case of 
one of the other boys, Ming is Ming, that tells the whole story. Ming is the 
other half of the Foreign Club, the other half being in the Chem Lab. Ming is 
a member of Phi Psi Fraternity. 

The school year is drawing to a close and the class looks back with mingled 
feelings of regret and joy, regret because there is but one more year to spend in 
"Tech" and joy because they have learned many things through the unselfish 
efforts of their instructors and also because they are one step nearer to the end 
of their apprenticeship-school.

SECOND YEAR CHEMISTRY 

JOHN LADINO is the lad who confines his activities to scholastic work and 
excels in steam and dyeing. Many members of the general class have blessed 
John while they were trying to match his color samples. He is famous for one 
thing, his seriousness. 

George Palmer — whose dimple is the envy of the rest of the class, delights 
in sleeping in lower berths on the Steamer Providence. He has the distinction 
of being the only man in the school who can go down Purchase Street and 
call half the girls he meets by name. 

James Pilkington — Jimmy is another soccer bug. In fact he divides his 
time between soccer, steam and his CAR, which resembles the well-known 
covered wagon, judging from its trick top and rubbery mud guards. It is be- 
lieved that Pilky is running a muscle building course. If in doubt, watch the 
boys work on the handle of his flivver. 

George Rawcliffe — is our distinguished basketball player and makes a 
specialty of analysis, next to basketball. He delights in going on basketball 
trips and sleeping in places which imitate the great open spaces. He was elected 
captain of next years basketball team. 

Adolph Twadowski — When Bryan died he left his oratorical powers to 
this young Polish gentleman from the North End. He is ready to argue any 
subject, any time, any where and is the originator of the well-known expression 
— "But, Mr. Brooks." He is also one of the owners of the Rose colored jacket, 
the Second Year's emblem of a "boner." It is rumored he has almost earned 
permanent possession of it.

FRESHMAN CLASS 



1930 



THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is Exhibit A, the class of 1930. Even as far 
back as last summer, the textile world had a premonition that something 
drastic was about to occur. All things being relative and equal, however, it is 
only fair to state that the world at large did not even dream of our existence. 
But here we are, a real live part of the student body of the New Bedford Textile 
School. A line from one of J. M. Barrie's plays sums up capably our intentions 
to a man — "Here I am and here I stays, 'till I gets what I came for." 

To say that we are working our way up the ladder of success is no mere 
figure of speech, for on the very first day of entrance, we willingly gave up all 
our worldly possessions to the school office, in order that no man might say — 
"His millions made him." 

Then it came to pass also that many of us lost faith in mankind. How 
a co-student could share his tobacco with you in the day time and then at 
night turn around and smite thee on the other cheek, was, at the very least, 



-■<{ 62 )§■

bewildering. Yet, we saw, experienced — and felt such things. Beards were 
very stylish and free matches and cigarettes were enjoyed to the utmost by the 
upper classmen. Then also there came freshman caps and ties, the former by 
Dobbs and the latter by Forhan, while the carpenter shops of the city worked 
overtime to supply the demand for paddles. Then the street parades, the in- 
itiation (lest we forget) and the "long walk" ended this particular phase of 
our school life. 

"Tempus fugited" merrily along and we began to find out that the "picker 
room" was not the office and that the "boll weevil fever" was perhaps something 
of a myth. Entwining ourselves around twills and spotting weaves soon be- 
came our favorite pastime. "Looms and Looming" by Mr. Acomb was our 
constant companion. Many of us followed the teachings of "Albumen, the 
Popular Mechanic," while the Chemistry Class joined in the pursuit of the elu- 
sive atom. 

Several of our members held down positions on the basketball team in a 
commendable fashion and there are a goodly number of candidates who will 
turn out for baseball. The reports of the Ping-Pong and Domino teams have 
not been returned as yet so the Athletic Association is rather reticent about 
making statements but the public may rest assured that a very prosperous and suc- 
cessful season has been enjoyed. 

Altho' a few of the class are now enjoying the royal and honorable sport 
of "shining the dinner pail," and some have decided to pass their time in other 
halls of learning, yet, on the whole, there is every indication that the class will 
"carry on." To our departed classmates we wish all kinds of prosperity and 

joy. 

Being the first class in the school to be organized as a Freshman unit, we 
are naturally rather proud of the fact and are already striving, as an organiza- 
tion, to do anything we can to promote activities and strengthen the common 
bond between ourselves and our respected and most highly esteemed upper- 
classmen. Plans are under way for a dance to be given in honor of our depart- 
ing Seniors. A most energetic committee is in charge of these plans and a 
successful evening is hoped for. 

Now that our Freshman days are drawing to a close and we step forward 
to our second year, it seems as tho' we had always been a part of "Tech." We 
begin to realize, somewhat, the seriousness of the problems that confront us 
but may we always keep that certain amount of light-heartedness and spirit 
which does so much to smooth the rocky pathways of life. 

To the Seniors, the class of 1930 wishes the best of luck and success. 'Thy 
ways be ways of pleasantness and all thy pathways peace."

ATHLETICS 



ONE is apt to wonder, when reading of sports and the great following they 
have, what the secret of it is, and where it is leading. The mere fact that 
the major sports, so-called have survived so long, and therein in spite of oppo- 
sition, proves their worthiness, for anything which will stand the time test 
must have a good foundation. Ancient historians have left us records of quite 
a variety of different sports, most of which were more or less brutal, but as civ- 
ilization grew, so brutality decreased until present day sports retain all the 
thrill and uncertainty possible, without being brutal. 

Most of the favorite modern sports are between teams, instead of individ- 
uals, and this, I think even above the crowds they attract, is one of the strongest 
points in their favor, for if a team hopes to be successful they must first acquire 
good team work, and this can only be obtained through hard work in practice, 
a thorough study of the particular game to be played, where the strength and 
weakness of each opponent lies, and by continuous working on new plays, or 
formations be able to take full advantage of any situation that may arise during 
the time the game is actually in progress. Even if the results were only measured 
by the actual period of life when active participation in sports is possible, it 
would be well worth while, as it helps to create a keen, active mind, in a strong, 
healthy body. At the present time team sports play quite a big part in grammar, 
high, prep and college programs, so that team-work or cooperation becomes al- 
most a habit with students who take part in them. The value of this trait 
cannot be over-estimated. Ask any executive what the most valuable part of 
his particular organization is, and usually he will stress cooperation. If 
student athletics teach it, as I have tried to show, then I say that they have 
justified their place in the present day program.

ATHLETICS AT TEXTILE 

ATHLETICS during the present school year of 1927-1928 have reached 
the highest position yet attained. The basketball season just closed has 
been the most satisfactory in recent years, if not, indeed, in the history of the 
School, and we fully expect the baseball season just opening will be fully as suc- 
cessful. 

The success of our basketball team has been due very largely to the 
spirit of co-operation shown by the members of the squad, the willingness to 
sacrifice personal glory for the best interests of the team. This could lead to 
but one end, the building of a team that could and would play together. This 
year we had no man who would keep the ball if there happened to be another 
player in a better position to shoot than himself. Those of us who saw the last 
two games played in our own gymnasium will long remember the perfect ex- 
hibition of team work there displayed. It is, however, to be regretted that more 
of us were not here to enjoy the spectacle. 

Our schedule this year was more nearly suited to a school in our 
position than most of those of other years. This is not to be understood to 
mean that the schedule was an easy one, for it was not, in fact it was the most 
difficult of anv school in this section of the State, including as it did such college 
teams as the Rhode Island State College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 
and Northeastern University, all of which defeated us, the last by one point 
only. Lowell Textile School, playing us just after an unavoidable break in the 
schedule, found us out of condition and won easily. Dean Academy, the Prep 
School Champions, was given the worst defeat they had ever experienced on their 
home floor. Meeting Bridgewater Normal, Rhode Island School of Design, 
Bradford-Durfee Textile School, and the local Vocational School on a home 
and home basis resulted in two victories over each. The Massachusetts College 
of Pharmacy was badly defeated on our home court near the end of the season 
at about the time that the team was at its best. The two remaining defeats were 
handed us by the Rogers High School, and the United States Coast Guard 
Academy, the latter winning by a single point. 

While the spirit shown by the members of the team has undoubtedly 
carried it on to success, too much credit cannot be given to our popular Coach, 
Mr. Schofield and his able assistant Mr. McVey. They have worked hard for 
the development of a team in which they could take pride and one that would 
be a credit to the School, and to themselves. How well they succeeded is shown 
by the fact that the team which had no star man, or should we say, a team 
of which every man was a star? The result was the same regardless of how it 
may be written. It was a TEAM.

The prospects for next year are bright. While we lose five of the first string 
men, Rawcliffe being the only man not to graduate this year, there has been 
developed a number of players who are now ready to take up the burden. To 
fill the places of Captain George Schofield, Fran Tripp, Fred Tripp, Ted Carlson 
and Curt Brotherson, and do it right, will require some hustling on the part of 
these younger players, if they are to maintain the pace set by these men. 

During the present year there has also been a noticeable growth of school 
spirit among the students and this assures a good season at baseball. The 
prospective candidates look good, as most of last year's team are still with us, 
while the new class is going to furnish us with several valuable candidates. The 
schedule, as in basketball, is better adapted to our school than in former years. 
Some of the exceptionally strong teams have been dropped and other schools of 
our own caliber taken in their places. 

Athletics are, as a whole, on the best footing in several years, and it is 
expected that in the future teams representing the New Bedford Textile School 
will stand, unchallenged, at the head of their class.

BASKET BALL 

TEXTILE VERSUS M. I. T. AT CAMBRIDGE, DECEMBER 3rd, 1927 

After weeks of hard training and practice, of long sessions of shooting, 
passing, dribbling, and pivotting the Tech squad appeared to be in fine fettle 
for their skirmish with M. I. T. Coach Schofield had built up a strong and 
deceptive system of plays with which he hoped to topple over the Engineers, 
but evidently it was not the will of the Gods of Basketball that mighty M. I. T. 
should fall at the hands of tiny Textile, though to be sure it was only in the 
last few minutes of play that it could be seen that the Cambridge boys were 
going to come out ahead. 

To any one who just glances at the two schools and compares them it 
would seem to be the height of foolhardiness for Textile with an enrollment in 
the neighborhood of 80 to match their skill with an institution than can draw 
from about 5000. Still there are other things to be considered besides just 
the size of the two schools. Most important of all is the spirit of the team and 
the coaching. Textile had, during its past season, the best of Coaching under 



-•€{ 69 };<-- 



THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 



Milt Schofield, and as for team spirit there has never been a 'more fightn'r" 
team representing Tech. 

THE GAME 

Coach Schofield sent out the following men to start the game for Textile — 
Rawcliffe and Fran Tripp forwards, Captain Schofield center, and Fred Tripp 
and Brotherson guards. Referee Kelliher, "than whom there is no better," blew 
his whistle and the game was on. 

For the first few minutes both teams played cautiously, then M. I. T. 
opened up and grabbed a lead that seemed quite safe until Textile spurted des- 
perately using criss crosses and open plays that had the Engineers bewildered for 
a time. As the gun sounded for the half Technology's big score board read 
M. I. T. 17— Visitors 15. 

The second half began and M. I. T. started like a whirlwind, due no doubt 
to the fighting talk that the coach had delivered to them. After some minutes 
of this half were gone, Carlson was sent into Textiles line-up. During the 
remainder of the game Textile was on the defensive most of the time and the 
M. I. T. team had to fight hard for each basket that they got. The game ended 
with the Cambridge boys on the long end of the 39 to 26 score. This game was 
but another instance of the "Good big team beating a good little team." The 
Textile team can rest assured that there was no disgrace in the beating taken 
and considering that it was the first of the season when even the best of teams 
have not accustomed themselves to each other, the game and score both showed 
Textile's caliber. 



AFTER being defeated by M. I. T. and beating Bridgewater Normal, the 
team journeyed to Kingston to play R. I. S. C. The R. I. team proved to 
be no slouch. It was practically the same team that had beaten us the year before 
by a score of 65 to 30. This year they had their hands full in beating us 
41 to 28. 

The team played one of its best games of the season, every man working 
together. It would be unfair to say that one player played better than another. 

In the beginning of the second half the R. I. coach put in his second team 
but they had not been in there two minutes when we had scored 6 points on 
them and the first team was immediately put into the game again. 

SECOND VOCATIONAL GAME 

N. B. T. S. 12 - V. H. S. 11 

The second game with Vocational School was one of the best games of 
the season from an outsider's point of view. Tech won by the slight margin

of only one point, and it was credited to Fran Tripp. Vocational had a lead 
of three points with only two minutes to go when Fran broke through, and 
with the aid of his team mates sank two baskets in a row which decided the 
game. 

Even- the Vocational rooters could not restrain themselves at the lighten- 
ing-like plays which ended the game, and few of the Tech rooters were able to 
speak the next day. Even one of the loudest talkers in the school admitted that 
he could not talk above a whisper, and the lab had one day when "Doc" 
Busby did not have to "shush" more than three times. 

, TEXTILE LANDS 49 TO 1 1 VICTORY 

New Bedford Team Swamps College of Pharmacy on Tech Floor 

Schofield and Francis Tripp were high scorers, scoring 15 and 14 points 
respectively, while Bolton and Isenstein played well for the Pharmacy. 

Starting of first quarter the Boston team looked as if they would give the 
Textile team plenty of action, as the local boys were held to a score of 9 to 5. 

Starting of the second quarter things began to look better for the local 
boys; Textile began to use their cross plays which took the Pharmacy by sur- 
prise. Due to the good work of Captain Schofield and his forward line Raw- 
cliffe and Francis Tripp, the score at the end of the half was increased 20 points 
leaving the score 29 to 7. 

The third quarter the Pharmacy failed to make, or score a single point. 
The Textile boys scored 13 more points bringing the score 42 to 7. Captain 
Schofield proved himself to be one of the best players ever entered or played on 
any team in the history of the school. 

Fred Tripp and Carlson played well at guard. 

At the beginning of the fourth quarter Coach Milt Schofield of the Tex- 
tile, injected his entire second team in place of the Varsity in the final period. 

Winsper was the high scorer of the second team, counting 2 points with 
Karl adding 1 foul basket.

On January 14 the "Sons of Tech" packed their autos and left for New 
London to do battle with the strong Mid-shipmen five. The previous season 
they had lost a close game to the "Mid-shipmen" by a two point margin, so 
Tech was in a determined state of mind to bring home the bacon if it was 
possible.

THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 

As in the case of our trip the previous year, we were given a rousing re- 
ception by the Midshipmen and were treated royally during our entire visit. 

Sundown found the crowd swarming around the entrance of the Armory 
eager to obtain a seat to watch the fray which was soon to start. With the 
large hall filled to capacity and the Cadet band playing a lively march, the Red 
and Gray of "Tech" came out to warm up. Soon the Cadets, led by their 
"Bruin" mascot and inspired by their band which by this time was pouring forth 
volumes of music, took to the floor for a final warming up. 

Tweet! Tweet! Tech had started to do battle with the Cadets. The 
New Bedford boys soon had ten points before the Cadets called for time out. 
By clever work on the part of Schofield and Francis Tripp the Tech team added 
three more points before the half ended and the Cadets managed to get six points. 
The half ended, Textile 13, Cadets 6. 

The final half found the Cadets playing a fine brand of basketball and the 
two teams staged some of the best playing that was ever witnessed in the New 
London Armory. With Tech leading 21 to 20 with a half minute to play and 
the hall in a deafening roar, Maloney who was playing left forward on the 
Cadets, dropped in a seemingly impossible shot from away out in one corner 
of the court which put the Cadets in the lead 22 to 21. 

By a wonderful piece of floor work Tech worked the ball down the floor 
and were ready to score another basket when the gun boomed — Textile was 
defeated by one point. 

A dance followed the game and the Cadet band furnished music. We were 
well treated during our stay at the Academy and as Tech started home, the 
Midshipmen gathered and gave us three rousing cheers. 

DEAN ACADEMY 

Perhaps one of the best games "Tech" turned in this season was the decisive 
victory over the crack Dean Academy quintet at Franklin, January 21. 

Capt. Schofield, sprained his ankle a minute before the opening whistle 
and threw a scare into the rest of the team, but, acting like a Spartan he 
entered the fray and played a whale of a game. This game was a wonderful ex- 
hibition of team- work on Textile's part; Schofield, the Tripps and Rawcliffe 
evenly dividing the scoring honors and "Stretch" Carlson consistently inter- 
cepting passes and blocking shots which soon discouraged the Dean players. At 
half-time "Tech" led by 22-11 but not satisfied with this they piled up their 
lead till, at the final whistle, the score read 34-19, — the worst defeat a Dean 
Academy quintet had ever received on their home court. Also "Tech's" five 
"Iron Men" had gone another game without a substitution. 

No little credit is due Textile for winning this game, as Dean, winning 
the Massachusetts State Prep School championship this season, won the honor 
of competing in the annual Glen Falls tournament. The only other game Dean 
lost this year was by one point to Tufts Freshmen at Medford.

BASKETBALL SIDELIGHTS 

Half the fun of playing Basketball is making the various trips, most of 
the happenings are funny and darned few are sad. You would be surprised if 
you knew how short a time it takes to go anywhere if you have three or four 
brother players with you to talk and pass away the time. It was during these 
trips that the following incidents were observed and they are here printed to 
pass on to the school. 

A Foul Shot 
On the New London trip, some of the squad were climbing the hill up 
to the old fort that rumour has it was captured by the British under Benedict 
Arnold in the Revolutionary War. At the foot of this hill is the garage that 
belongs to the Academy. One of the men spoke up and told one of his fellow 
players that the automobile in which Arnold rode up to the fort was in the 
garage. The fellow he spoke to ran down the hill looked into the garage and 
said "They all seem to be in pretty good condition here"!!!! 

PATHETIC FIGURES

glass) .

THINGS WHICH THE SQUAD WILL NEVER SEE AGAIN

Fred Tripp being kicked out of a home game. 

Brotherson hiding behind a car door rather than having his picture taken. 

Coach Schofield munching on peanuts and telling us how bad they are for 
the wind. And thereby hangs a tale . 

Coach Schofield owed Carlson twenty cents and while going through 
Providence on the way to R. I. State, it was suggested that we stop and buy 
something. The coach was all for it and further agreed to buy something that 
Carlson liked for the twenty cents. He did — he bought a pound of nuts and 
told Carlson that half were his but that he couldn't have any as they were bad for 
his wind. The debt was settled and they almost had to use a straight jacket on 
Carlson. Talk about Ponzi! ! !

Get Adams to tell you what two hard babies said to each other as he came 
sliding across the floor on his ear towards them in the first Vocational game. 
It is rumoured that Horse Haggerty is going to lose his job due to a new phenom 
that has burst into being at the Textile School. No less than our Eddie Wareing. 

Boxing and Basketball, "Rajah Karl." This season Rajah was the only 
one on the squad to mix the aforementioned two on the basketball court. Just 
once however so he will be forgiven this time. 

Appreciation 

The squad wishes to make known' here that they think that they have the 
best Athletic Director and the best Coach of any school, anywhere. Mr. Busby 
has proved himself to be one of the most understanding of men when it comes 
to controlling a bunch of fellows and his just treatment and willingness to 
meet them a little more than half way is deeply appreciated by the team. 

Coach Schofield has been able to get more out of the boys that they 
realized perhaps due to the fact that he himself is a real sport in every sense 
of the word and to the fact that his own squareness in dealing with the boys 
made them play the game in a sporting manner and give everything they had 
for him. As a result Tech has turned in one of the most successful seasons that 
the school has had for a long time. 

One of the most rabid Textile fans, strange as it may seem, was not a student 
but that didn't prevent him from going on nearly every trip. All the squad, 
at least, knows that we mean "Sam" McVey. The way Sam tore around in 
that car of his to get to the games on time caused much speculation among the 
boys as to whether we would next see the doughty Sam at the game or wrapped 
around some telegraph pole. We surely appreciate Sam's work in helping the 
Coach in the practice sessions and for working as one of our officials in 
nearly every game.

BASEBALL 

BASEBALL is now under way. Once again the class supplied a captain 
for a school team, this time in the person of Edmond Waring . "Ed" 
has been doing mound duty for the school for the past three seasons. Nor is 
"Ed" the only representative of the class on the team. "Curt" Brotherson 
scoops up all the fast ones at short stop besides taking his turn at the slab regu- 
larly. All indications point to a successful season in baseball, as last year's 
varsity squad is practically intact. 

Having less than a hundred students, and playing teams of collegiate rank, 
we cannot help but feel a bit egotistic at "Tech" in the field of sports. 
However, let it be said at this time that this is largely due to the influence and 
enthusiasm instilled in us by our Director of Athletics, Fred E. Busby. There 
is nothing he is unwilling to do for us in the line of athletics.

TEXTILE BALL PLAYERS READY TO GET GOING 

GOOD DIAMOND PROSPECTS OUT 
Tech Should Have Good Season 

Baseball practice will start at Textile within a week or so when Coach 
Milt Schofield will call out the candidates for the batteries to work out in the 
gym. Plenty of material is on hand and from all evidence Tech should have a 
fairly good team. Although baseball is not the big sport as is basketball the 
Millmen usually turn out a fairly good team. 

For pitchers the Tech nine can depend on two of last year's squad and a 
couple of Freshmen. Wareing and Fawcett are both veterans and Karl a fresh-

man was a good performer, while at New Bedford high. There are plenty of 
aspirants for the receiving end of the battery with Lincoln, Sullivan, Soler, and 
Twardowski on hand. 

The infield is all veterans with Adams at first, Twardowski, if not catching 
at second, Curt Brotherson at short, and Drozek at third. The garden is com- 
plete except for one berth, left field that Chick Wareing who graduated held 
down. The other two are certain to fall to the two men who held them last 
year Frank Tripp and Turgeon. 

Textile has written finis to a very satisfactory basketball season and chief 
among the accomplishments of the year has been the double defeat of Durfee 
Textile, the local boys most bitter rivals. The Mill Men also have a clear 
title to the City championship as they have defeated Vocational twice, Holy 
Family, and swamped the high school boys in a practice game. The Tech 
quintet dropped six games out of 17 played, and considering that the games 
dropped were to large colleges with the exception of two their record is im- 
pressive. 

Fran Tripp was the high scoring ace of Textile with his 160 points with 
an average of 9.41 points per game. Ciose behind Tripp came Schofield and 
Rawcliffe who were both well over the century mark in their scoring.

PHI PSI FRATERNITY 

BETA CHAPTER 

BETA Chapter's activities and interests were many and varied during 
1927. 

With the 24th annual convention and long list of speakers and enter- 
tainers the Phi Psi brothers renewed many old acquaintances. The annual dance 
is, of course, long since forgotten by Turner, Winsper and Brotherson but will 
be remembered for a long time by the other surviving brothers and lady friends. 

In the fall of '27 many pumps of the hand and slaps on the back took place 
and a general greeting was given to Brother Holmes upon his return to our fold 
for another year. 

The "fall" banquet for our prospective brothers will not be forgotten 
soon, especially the latter part of the evening in Lincoln Park. Everybody 
seemed happy but Macia. Pope Beach seemed a popular place on initiation 
night when thirty hooded brothers got lost in the darkness of the night. The

permanent residents were worried as they thought they had been invaded by the 
Ku Klux. Thanks to Sullivan that night, Paine may also need reminding of the 
incident. Fawcett's feet held out splendidly, considering his two hundred pound 
body. 

Phi Psi's social activities took a vacation from that night until the Christ- 
mas party. A "quiet" evening was spent by the boys, listening to "The Shoot- 
ing of Dan McGrew," which was put over so splendidly by Brothers Dow, 
Holmes. Fawcett, Paine, Brooks and last but not least, Carlson. 'Ted" got 
"shot" that night. By the way, this was "Rad's" birthday and the last of the 
boys seen that night were Dan Sullivan and Turner decorating the Christmas 
tree on High St. Greg added a sign to his collection. 

The mid-year exams passed without any loss of lives or brothers. The 
February dance was run off. Phi Psi musical talent was in evidence that night 
as proved by the Phi Psi orchestra under no less a guidance than Brother J. 
Dow from Rhode Island. Fawcett and Carlson do play mean instruments and 
we all have had jazzitis since that night. 

The Phi Psi Fraternity as well as helping furnished the students with 
social activities tends to improve their scholastic standing as proven by the 
number of honor students now in the fraternity.

DELTA KAPPA PHI FRATERNITY 

ONDAY, September 12th, 1927. all Delta Kappa Phi men were on hand 
renewing acquaintances after the summer vacation. After completing the 
usual routine of registration, the Fraternity members discussed what they had 
been doing during the summer and the rest of the day was spent in following 
pleasure's bent. 

With school opened and the routine learned, thoughts turned to "Open 
Night" which was held September 21st, at the New Bedford Hotel. The great 
event of initiation started and the initiates certainly wished that the "candy 
mint with the hole" had never been invented. Skull caps of purple and white 
and large purple boy ties made the candidates outstanding attractions both to 
the people passing the school and to those in the center when the "Big Parade" 
was held. The evening was a great success. 

However, the actual initiation was held in October and the event will not 
be forgotten soon by some of the candidates. Some of them could qualify for 
any cross country race or marathon walking race. A certain something which 
taught the candidates to dance and sent the shivers up and down their legs will 
long be remembered in connection with this evening which was enjoyed by the 



-4 80 K*- 



19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR 



Fraternity members and some of the Alumni. 

The social season, having been opened by the Initiation, was carried for- 
ward in great style with the "Christmas Hop" held at the hotel a few days be- 
fore the holiday vacation. Maybe that night won't be remembered! Every 
Delta Kappa Phi man thoroughly enjoyed himself -- AND HOW! ! 

After the Christmas vacation was over and the members were back to 
school, wonderful tales were heard about New Year's parties and vacation times. 
New socks, ties, cigarette lighters, etc. were sported about the school. 

The next event on the Delta Kappa Phi's social calender was the Collegiate 
Hop at Duff's Small Hall. Dimmed lights, flowing gowns and dancers gliding 
over the floor were seen. It surely was a successful night for D. K. 

After mid-year exams were over, thoughts turned to new social times, both 
of the school and outside the school. Basketball was the chief interest, Turgeon, 
Ed Wareing and Drozek. Francis Tripp lead the scoring, by the way. 

Two new members were taken in this term and made a total membership of 
twenty-one. 

Spring brought baseball and Fran Tripp, Ed Wareing, Drozek and Othote 
represented the Fraternity on the diamond. 

The Annual Convention is the event which is looked forward to all 
the year. It is to be held at Tabitha Inn on April 21st. A wonderful time 
greeting other Fraternity brothers and Alumni is expected and all Delta Kappa 
Phi men are looking forward to the event with marked interest. 

Then comes the final event of the year, the Annual Farewell Party, given to 
the graduating members. This will be held in May, just before leaving for the 
summer vacation. The Fraternity loses seven members by graduation this year. 

Looking backwards is to gaze upon a most enjoyable year spent together, 
a year in which friendships were formed that go to make a Fraternity all that 
it should mean.

SIGMA PHI TAU FRATERNITY 

THE Beta Chapter of Sigma Phi Tau Fraternity was not very active in 
school affairs this past year. Textile conditions have been so depressed 
these past months that few Jewish students have entered this school of learning. 
But as there was an alumni chapter in New Bedford, Beta Chapter was able to 
keep up the Sigma Phi Tau spirit and there were quite a few successful parties 
held. 

The annual dance with Gamma Chapter of the Bradford Durfee Textile 
School of Fall River was held March 3rd. This proved to be a great social 
success. Favors which certainly will be cherished, were given to the girls who 
attended the dance. 

The convention was held this year the week end of March 30th, 31st, and 
April 1st. Judging by the plans outlined by Alpha Chapter of the Phil- 
adelphia School, there are enough events to keep the boys busy up until the 
moment of leaving.

THE TEXTILE GOOSE 

"Where is the Textile Goose?" 

The waddling mascot of the school, that eighth wonder of the world, the 
wonder bird of the age, the Textile Goose has disappeared, that gentle bird who 
never emitted a loud "Honk" while in captivity, the well-known figure that 
promenaded on Tech's campus whenever taking a walk for her health. 

It was only last evening when she waddled to her corner in the weighing 
room to rest after a hard day's work and now she is gone, gone, leaving behind 
sorrowing students who will leave no stone unturned, no hay loft over-looked, 
behind or in which she may have hidden. 

The best detectives are put on the case but even they can find no clue, not 
even a feather. 

A week passes and before the students eyes always appears the black beady 
eyes of their favorite goose. Nothing has been accomplished and the detectives 
have given up the case as one that cannot be solved and so list the goose, the 
favorite goose, with the missing hens that have never been found. 

The students are in an uproar and scour the country for miles around and 
say that she must be found, "be she alive or be she dead." It is just a week to a 
day when the students smell an odor that can be but just one thing, that of 
roasted goose. A rush is made upon the house from which the odor comes and 
there they find her on her back in a large white platter, with neck tucked under 
her wing and feet lifted toward the ceiling and her skin colored a delicate brown. 

The Textile students stop and wait with bowed heads and tears in their 
eyes while the Textile Quartet sing that song of mourning, "Go Tell Aunt 
Rhody the Old Gray Goose is Dead." They realize so well that they shall look 
no more into those dark eyes from which real goose tears fell when she learned 
she could not have "goofer feathers." 

When the song is ended there is a scraping of chairs the disappearance of 
the Textile Goose is no longer a mystery, for, having been captured and fattened 
by one of the students, she lies in state in the place of honor at the Senior Class 
banquet, never to be forgotten, especially by those who have indigestion!

163 to 2 in their favor 
but we had simple honors. 

Tank, the left forward of the 
Drown team, seized the puck and 
hurled it thru' the air to a waiting 
outside forward. However, Jenks of 
our team, kicked the ball out of dan- 
ger and slid to first base, making it 
two downs and four yards to go! 

With a wild whoop, a brawny lad 
grabbed the volley ball and tucked it 
into his plus fours. He charged over 
the eighth hole and swam past the 
three mile limit. He silently crawled 
by the unseeing Drown team and 
galloped down the home stretch, 
shook off tacklers and outfielders like 
crumbs, scored a basket and won the 
game for dear old Alma Mater. 

Great was the excitement when the 
umpire took our hero's hand and 
raised it on high in token of victory. 
It was a seven round decision ! 

There were great doings that night 
at Smith Hall and all Purchase Street 
rang with the festivities. 

Thus I close, with the moon shin- 
ing on our ivy clad walls and the 
cats caterwauling on our expansive 
campus. 



On a Tombstone 
Beneath this mound and sleeping 

sound 
Lies cross-eyed Bunnie Gregg; 
His life was nabbed when the 

sap grabbed 
For the brake and got her leg. 



poor 



The Latest Dirt! 
They called her Tonsils because 
so many young doctors took her out. 



JOKES 
Mr. Acomb: Run this loom 
Turner. Turner pulls on shiper 
handle. Result, 436 ends out and 
93000 curses by Mr. Moore. 



IZZY'S FIT 
Little Izzy had a fit, 
His mother didn't notice it; 
It didn't hurt the child a bit, 
In fact it was a Benny — fit. 



"Stop," she cried, "stop" or I shall 
call the chauffeur. He laughed jok- 
ingly, "Why that coward couldn't 
help you, he is only a Yellow Cab 
driver." 



Macia: "What is this eternal tri- 
angle they write so much about?" 

Mr. Crompton: "A woman, her 
husband, and his golf." 



Ted's Girl: "Who told you this 
dress is too long?" 

Lee's Girl: "Nobody, but yester- 
day it caught in my garters." 



Faucett's wife: "Were you ner- 
vous the first time you asked your 
husband for money?" 

Brotherson's wife: "No, I was 
calm and collected." 



Following Doc's orders: 
'That looks like dog biscuit you 

are eating Peters." 

"So it is." 'The doctor says what 

I need is more animal food." 



A lesson in color: 
Red wine, white women and blue 

songs, 
Make any man go wrong.

\Dyed Tarn Will 



IF you have your yarn dyed in the wound Franklin Packag'e 
form you eliminate skeins and chain warps with their atten- 
dant waste, also one winding operation in the case of warp 
yarn for weaving. 

Franklin Process dyeing, using the pressure method, also 
effects superior penetration and the yarn, being wound at all 
times, remains unchanged in twist and is free from felting. 

The complete story of Franklin Process Commission Dyeing 
Service is told in our de luxe Book A. Write our nearest 
office and we will be glad to send you a copy.

LEAD PENCILS VS. 
CALCULATING MACHINES 

The lead pencil couldn't keep up with 
the modern demand for efficiency, so the 
calculating machine was invented. 

Neither could ordinary alkalies produce 
for the textile manufacturer, the soft tex- 
ture and fine appearance that he desired 
in his textile products. 

For this reason the special purpose 




won instant preference in the textile field, and 
the daily increasing demand for these 
modern textile alkalies is proof that they 
are a profitable investment for the tex- 
tile plant.

Never has color had the power to influence 
sales as it does today. More clothing, more 
textile fabrics for use in the home are being 
sold simply because color has a universal 
sales appeal. 

Manufacturers in the textile field are not 
only aware of the rapidly growing demand 
among consumers for color but colors which 
are fast. 

Du Pont dyes are available which satisfac- 
torily fill this requirement, dyes which im- 
part to textile fabrics the enduring color 
qualities the public is being taught to expect.
